High School Dropouts

Pop-Punk is not dead and Tampere, Finland based High School Dropouts is proof of this! With 100 shows around Europe and sweaty entertaining live shows, High School Dropouts have now released their first ever recording. LAST RESORT, a cover of Papa Roach’s classic is out now!

Known as an amazing live band, they play all the big pop-punk hits from the mid 90’s to the end of the 2010’s at their live shows. High School Dropouts give a guaranteed party for all fans of pop-punk music and are now dipping their toes into making some of the classics their own in the studio.

HSDO have performed at venues like Provinssi Festival, Pop-Punk Voltage Festival in Copenhagen, Sveta Bar in Estonia, Nummirock and festival afterparties like Tuska, Kuopiorock and Qstock and supported names like Millencolin, The Casualties, Disco Ensemble and Turmion Kätilöt to name a few.
